I booked this hotel through groupon and I think it was a great choice! We were lucky to get a renovated room! We got to the island early in the morning and they had their own shuttle pick us up. I would call the hotel to let them know what time you'll be in so they know to pick you... More

Beautiful place to stay, my balcony overlooked the pool, the rooms were great, had a mini fridge and microwave and good bedding. front desk was a great help. Spoke to Andrew for 15 minutes and planned out where to eat for every meal while we were there. Great time!

My family and I visited this hotel for a weekend stay. When we arrived, we had a terrible room. It was bad and outdated. The lights didn't work for the most part and there was grey spots on the blanket. In addition, there was rust in the toilet. However, we transferred rooms and it got a lot better. It was... More

Stayed one night @ Catalina Canyon Resort and Spa last week. We had a terrific price via Hotwire, which is why I took a chance for our family of four. The staff was excellent. The shuttle drivers were wonderful (too far to hoof it without the shuttle service). The location is great for being outside the main drag - with... More

Thank you for the positive review and the kind comments about the staff. I will look into the pool. I know we had to lower the temp with the water conservation, but I don't want it to cold. We are planning on renovating the restaurant after the first of the year. I hope you will come visit us again and... More

I stayed here last night with my husband and we liked it.The inside of the room looks brand new. I reserved on booking.com and THEN read the reviews on here, so I made sure I requested a renovated room. It was 103 dollars, I probably wouldn't pay more than that. The restaurant opens a bit late at 8am, so we... More

I'm so glad to liked your stay. The ping pong table is a huge success. It's great to see all the families out side playing. We just started up are renovations again. Once all the rooms are done everyone will have a newly renovated room. The restaurant has limited hours now that we are in the winter season. I'm sorry... More

We just returned from a one-night stay at the Catalina Canyon Resort. I took my husband for his birthday as he had never been to Catalina. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Thank you for such a great review. The renovated rooms are very modern and very comfortable. That two block hike can be tough, so I'm so glad the shuttle was able to meet your needs. I hope your able to bring your husband back again next year. Thanks you for staying with us and taking time to write a review. More

This hotel is very old and does not look like the pictures. Our room smelled of mold and I came home with bed bug bites on our faces and arms. The service was also lacking and bag service included an open door with everyone's luggage there. I could easily walk in and just take what I wanted.Also, the transportation from... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations. We have started a renovation to bring the hotel to a higher level. I had the hotel inspected by our pest control and he saw no signs of bed bugs. Thank you again for your review. More

Prior to arriving, it was difficult to reach the hotel as they don't often answer their phone or you get put on hold for over 5 minutes. When they finally answered, the man was rude, terse and barely answered our questions. The hotel notes indicate it's possible to have a rollaway bed brought into the room. Upon arrival, however, we... More

Thank you so much for the positive review. The renovation has started up again. We are working on the rest of the guest rooms now. The lobby and the restaurant will begin after the new year.
